Back in print! The story of Napa Valley winemaking is the story of its people–their triumphs and failures, their passion and commitment, and their ongoing struggle to produce world-class wines. In Michael Chiarello's stories and profiles, we meet the people who make the wine that gives Napa Valley its singular reputation. As Chiarello points out, the best wines are more than just grapes, soil, and weather; there is a hint of the winemaker's we can taste the history and effort that has shaped every glass.
In addition, the book includes vignettes that explain the winemaking process as a series of critical decisions–which varietals to plant where, how to trellis, whether to use barrel fermentation or stainless steel, what method of blending is best, even what kind of cork to use.
Includes 6 menus, 20 recipes in all created by Chiarello for special Napa Valley celebrations with the profiled winemakers.

Host your own wine pairing dinner at home and invite some friends. It'll be a more casual, relaxed environment than a restaurant wine pairing dinner, and you and your guests can enjoy learning about the wine together- instead of from an (often) snobby sommelier. Go to a local wine shop and ask for help with a few pairings. They are usually more than happy to help you if you commit to buying a few bottles. Make sure to ask for any literature or information they have on the wine that you can share with your guests.
